The Binance Incubation Program

The Binance Incubation program was an initiative created by Binance Labs to promote the most promising blockchain projects and builders worldwide. The program was introduced in 2018, and designed to invest and help entrepreneurs deliver the best products deemed fit for the market. 

Binance Labs is the investment arm of the top exchange protocol. The Incubation Program has aided many of the best startups and teams that have been established. 


The first season saw eight crypto startups receive incentives to boost their chances of success in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) market. Binance Labs held the second season in 2019. A total of 13 crypto startups were supported, including Xend, Dune Analytics, Keylabs, and many others. 

Today, Binance Labs is again on the lookout for the most promising projects in the crypto space. Season three looks to reward even more unique innovation.
